AFL Finals Week One Preview & Betting – Fremantle Vs Hawthorn

On Saturday afternoon Fremantle will welcome Hawthorn to the Subiaco Oval for their tough qualification final, so to make the most of the betting odds head to Ladbrokes.com.au now!

As the tail end of the tournament gets pointier controversy flows, and Fremantle coach Mark Harvey has made it clear he believes tactics used in round 21 will pay dividends this weekend.

Harvey opted to field a half-strength side against Hawthorn two weeks ago, which means the Hawks don’t know what to expect when the Dockers play their best line-up.

The home side are slight outsiders for the win at $2.20 with Ladbrokes.com.au, although there could be as many as 12 changes made to the side which lost by 116 points when they play this Saturday.

Skipper Matthew Pavlich – who has been superb for Freo this season – was one of the key players rested in round 21, and has revealed his anticipation to succeed this finals season.

The Hawks are at $1.68 for the win with Ladbrokes.com.au, and skipper Sam Mitchell has not been shy to reveal his belief the Hawks can win the Premiership from seventh on the ladder.

Hawthorn have put in a stunning second half of the season, capping it off with a nail-biting victory over Minor Premiers Collingwood last weekend.

Having beaten the Dockers with such style in round 21 Hawthorn will be heading into this weekend full of confidence, but need to stay aware of the changes Freo are set to make.

We are tipping an incredibly close score line with Hawthorn on the better side of it with a 1-9 point difference at $8 with Ladbrokes.com.au.
